The Recoleta Cemetery is surprisingly one of the major attractions of Buenos Aires. It is located in the upmarket area of Recoleta and is the final resting place of many of the rich and famous of Buenos Aires.
The tombs are built above the ground because the area was quite marshy and caused the bodies to make there way to the surface over time. The cemetery is quite an unusual place at resembles some kind of off kilter city with it’s ‘streets’ lined with elaborate tombs.
The tomb of Eva Peron is located here and is one of the most visited places at the cemetery. Although it has an eery feel to it, the Recoleta Cemetery is well worth a look.
